Kent State head coach Darrell Hazell is a bit concerned about his offense heading into this Saturday's game on the road against Kansas State.
The Kent State offense managed only one touchdown and one field goal in their 20-12 loss to the University of Louisiana - Lafayette last Saturday night at Dix Stadium.
Hazell says the offense, may be 'checking down' their plays a bit too much, which slows down their tempo. He says they will have to change some things this week in practice so they can get into a groove running the football which will open up the play-action pass for the offense.
Hazell says those changed will allow the quarterback Spencer Keith to play behind the center instead of being in the shotgun formation on every down.
The first year head coach says while he likes his offensive line, they haven't done a 'great job' up front this season.
Hazell says he was most impressed with the play of his special teams this week and the defense. Hazell says they spent 30 minutes before practice talking about special teams.
As for the defense, Hazell says they created three turnovers in the Lafayette game, but were unable to take advantage of the miscues.
